Unhappy Internet/Data Usage

Please Login to Remove!

I am on o2 in the UK and have just looked through my bill after being charged 5.66 for data already this month. These charges have come from my device access mobile.o2.co.uk rather than blackberry.net and for some reason for the last week every night at midnight my device has accessed both blackberry.net and mobile.o2.co.uk. My contract is blackberry inclusive so covers the access to blackberry.net but how can I stop it accessing the mobile.o2.co.uk and why is this happening every night at midnight?

Not sure why it's accessing O2 but I'd suggest you go to the O2 customer services forum for answers to your billing queries as they'll be able to answer those questions for you a lot better.

Check your pre-loaded O2 software isn't scheduled to check for daily updates.

Sounds like you have an application installed that is using data via the carrier's APN. I understand some carrier's charge for TCP separate from blackberry data. Could that be the case?
